Americans are delaying major life and financial decisions because of worries about the economy and job security, according to a survey by Harris Interactive for the AICPA. The survey found that 47% of respondents were worried they will lose their job, while 10% of the 1,011 respondents were "very concerned" about being out of work. Buying a house, going to college, getting married, having children, undergoing medical procedures or retiring were among the activities respondents said they would delay.
